In many respects,w e understand the structure of the universeb etter than the workings of living cells. Scientists can calculate the age of the Sun and predict when it will cease to shine, but we cannot explain how it is that a human being may live for eighty years but a mouse for only two. We know the complete genomes equenceso f thesea nd many other speciesb, ut we still cannot predict how a cell will behave if we mutate a previously unstudied gene. Stars may be l0a3 times bigger, but cells are more complex, more intricately structured, and more astonishingp roducts of the laws of physicsa nd chemistry.T hrough heredity and natural selection, operating from the beginnings of life on Earth to the presentd ay-that is, for about 20Voo f the ageo f the universe-living cellsh ave been progressively refining and extending their molecular machinery and recording the results of their experiments in the genetic instructions they pass on to their progeny. With each edition of this book, we marvel at the new information that cell biologists have gathered in just a few years. But we are even more amazed and daunted at the sophistication of the mechanisms that we encounter. The deeper we probe into the cell,t he more we reafizeh ow much remainst o be understood. In the days of our innocence, working on the first edition, we hailed the identification of a single protein-a signal receptol say-as a great step forward' Now we appreciate that each protein is generally part of a complexwith many others, working together as a system, regulating one another's activities in subtle ways, and held in specific positions by binding to scaffold proteins that give the chemical factory a definite spatial structure. Genome sequencing has given us virtually complete molecular parts-lists for many different organisms; genetics and biochemistry have told us a great deal about what those parts are capable of individually and which ones interact with which others; but we have only the most primitive grasp of the dynamics of these biochemical systems, with all their interlocking control loops. Therefore, although there are great achievements to report, cell biologistsf ace eveng reaterc hallengesf or the future. In this edition, we have included new material on many topics, ranging from epigeneticsh, istonem odificationss, mall RNAs,a nd comparativeg enomicst,o geneticn oise,c ytoskeletadl lmamics,c ell-cyclec ontrol, apoptosis,s tem cells, and novel cancer therapies. As in previous editions, we have tried above all to give readers a conceptual framework for the mass of information that we now have about cells. This means going beyond the recitation of facts. The goal is to learn how to put the facts to use-to reason, to predict, and to control the behavior of living systems. To help readers on the way to an active understanding, we have for the first time incorporatede nd-of-chapterp roblems,w ritten by Iohn Wilson and Tim Hunt.

Perhaps the biggest change is in the physical structure of the book. In an effort to make the standard Student Edition somewhat more portable, we are providing chapters 2r-25, covering multicellular systems, in electronic (pDF) form on the accompanying disc, while retaining in the printed volume chapters l-20, covering the core of the usual cell biology curriculum. But we should emphasize that the final chapters have been revised and updated as thoroughly as the rest of the book and we sincerely hope that they will be read!

Molecular and Cell Biology of Type 2 Diabetes and Its Complications

Author: Francesco Belfiore
Publisher: Karger Medical and Scientific Publishers
ISBN: 9783805566445
Release Date: 1998-01-01
Genre: Medical

The present volume summarizes current research on type 2 diabetes, its etiology, pathogenesis and long-term vascular and neurological consequences, with special emphasis on molecular and biochemical mechanisms. Alterations in insulin secretion are comprehensively treated, focusing on the role of glucokinase as glucose sensor. Moreover, insulin action is analyzed with regard to both nonoxidative glucose utilization and glucose oxidation. Concerning the complications in chronic diabetes, topics covered include the effects of high glucose concentration on cellular and endothelial functions and on the glucose phosphorylation rate in non-insulin-sensitive tissues. Furthermore, the role of oxidative stress and advanced glycation end products as well as the significance of alterations in lipoprotein structure are considered. Finally, the pericyte loss in retinopathy and microalbuminuria as related to cardiovascular risk are discussed. Taken as a whole, the contributions included in this book represent a large body of information that will be of great interest to diabetologists, endocrinologists and internists interested in both the basic and clinical aspects of diabetes and its complications.

Genome

Author: Matt Ridley

Release Date: 2013-03-26
Genre: Science

The genome's been mapped. But what does it mean? Arguably the most significant scientific discovery of the new century, the mapping of the twenty-three pairs of chromosomes that make up the human genome raises almost as many questions as it answers. Questions that will profoundly impact the way we think about disease, about longevity, and about free will. Questions that will affect the rest of your life. Genome offers extraordinary insight into the ramifications of this incredible breakthrough. By picking one newly discovered gene from each pair of chromosomes and telling its story, Matt Ridley recounts the history of our species and its ancestors from the dawn of life to the brink of future medicine. From Huntington's disease to cancer, from the applications of gene therapy to the horrors of eugenics, Matt Ridley probes the scientific, philosophical, and moral issues arising as a result of the mapping of the genome. It will help you understand what this scientific milestone means for you, for your children, and for humankind.
